    I know I have real problems. The inserts they made help some. My feet must be really messed up. I do not want to have any surgeries. I am happy with what they did for me. It is somewhat better now. I will never be able to walk any kind of distance though. They were professional and I appreciate that next to being denied health care previously for 6 years for political reasons. Go to fraudbuster.org and see the corruption I have put up with.

    My only disappointment is that the waiting room was very crowded, which I didn't think was safe during the Covid epidemic.

    I have recommended your office often, and will continue to....

    That said, most of those I’ve referred wish Dr. Baravarian would spend a bit more time with them; they express that they feel rushed through and not personally “seen.“ But they all seem satisfied with the outcomes. Ultimately that’s most important, but because you’ve asked— and because I want those I refer to be happy — I thought I’d share.

    Thank you for your interest!

    We would not hesitate to recommend Dr Baravarian. In fact on our local Nextdoor postings this week, Dr B was recommended more than anyone else in answer to a neighbor's request for a referral.

    Gratitude and a suggestion:
    I ask a lot of questions and really appreciate that all of my questions are thoroughly answered. Thank you Dr. Babak Baravarian!

    Twice recently I've been asked to "test drive" new toys in doctor's offices. Both times I was inside a small patient/treatment room. The toys were very different, but the results were similar:
    The first time I was asked if a pair of reading glasses made me dizzy when walking. I reported to my doctor that I had no problem with dizziness inside the little room, but the moment I walked out onto busy Wilshire Boulevard I almost threw up, I was so disoriented.
    The second time I tested custom orthotic shoe inserts. (The problem I have been having is that, when I walk, one of my toes tingles as if it is asleep.) Inside the small room, I reported that my toe wasn't tingling while walking. The moment I got out onto Wilshire Boulevard and picked up some speed, my toe began tingling.
    My suggestion is that test drives should happen in a more real-life setting than a tiny patient/treatment room.
